#ENOUGH: Plays to End Gun Violence calls on teens to confront gun violence by creating new works of theatre that will spark critical conversations and inspire meaningful action in communities across the country. Our mission is to promote playwriting as a tool for self-expression and social change, harnessing this generation's spirit of activism and providing a platform for America's playwrights of tomorrow to discover and develop their voices today.

Is #ENOUGH part of any gun violence prevention organization?
We are not. While we look forward to partnering with organizations seeking to end gun violence, #ENOUGH is an independent project.
What's your story? How did #ENOUGH come to be?
I was inspired. The purpose of #ENOUGH became clear: lend our stages to amplify this growing voice so that it continues to be heard.
I founded #ENOUGH on the belief that young people can become powerful activists through the art they create. This year's participants believe that as well. Just listen to Demian, a 12th grader from El Paso on why he submitted a play to #ENOUGH:
